A beautiful hotel, with a nice pool, although we never got to use it, as we were in the city too much. Convenient for airport travels, but not the best location if you want to do things in the city. Dinner was very pricey though (seems to be a common thing in Mumbai)

I took the western line ticket and within a few minutes caught a fast local heading in that direction. Although I should have known better not ...
... ice cream and a donut type thing with cream. Healthy finish! There was plenty of food and we rolled away happy people. The food part of the tour was great, but so was the walking around between the stalls taking in the locals and observing their way of life. Webby bought some bangles along the way for 300 rupees. This was a good deal but not cheap according to Asim. 300 rupees is about £3 or $4.50. But when you think that an average wage is about ...
... been a bit dodgy, or we'd simply not coped well sleeping in a cell we couldn't say, but a morning of recuperation in an air conditioned coffee house with facilities was required, and Starbucks seemed to be the only place that fit the bill. Come the afternoon we felt up to a walking tour, and headed up Mahatma Ghandi (MG) road past the National Gallery of Modern Art to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharj Vastu Sangrahalya, previously known as the Prince of Wales Museum. The colonial names ...
